Mozyr Refinery: catching fresh wind of opportunity



Belarus oil refining, in the mid-1990s rather underdeveloped industrial complex particularly compared to that time facilities in the neighbouring Ukraine and Lithuania, experienced a sizable technological leapfrog over the last 15-17 years. There are two refineries currently operating in the country, 240,000b/d Mozyr and Novopolotsk 216,000b/d Naftan refineries, as well as Belarus state-owned Belorusneft 500mn m3 Rechitsa gas refinery. In 2011 the country launched the next impressively large-scale and far-flung stage of its refining development.
